China Merchants Group has officially launched a new roro shipping joint venture with Guangzhou Automobile (GAC).

The joint venture is set up in Guangzhou, a major roro logistics hub in south China.

China Merchants announced the plan to set up the joint venture in June. The new company Guangzhou China Merchants RoRo Transporation is 70% owned by China Merchants subsidiary CSC RoRo Logistics and 30% owned by GAC.
